stories and inspiration from those who followed the song in their souls

Music gives a soul to the universe,
wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination,
and life to everything.
~ Plato ~



There are performances that entertain you and there are performances that move you.  Soul music goes beyond that.  Soul music changes you.   For a couple of hours you can forget about the world that you left and become immersed in the world of the musicians. 

Eventually, you go back to your own world, but even that has changed.  Things there just feel better, smell better, taste better.  Soul music stays with you for hours, for days, for years ~ long after the performance is over.  There is part of the performance that is imprinted on your soul ~ forever.

The Soul of Jazz is a book dedicated to all artists ~ past, present, and future ~ who are willing to listen to the music in their hearts and follow the song in their souls.  Find out more about
The Soul of Jazz,
or read some excerpts from the book.

"Trish's way with words rhythmically dances through her interview with the artist..."  - Billy Kilson, drummer
